Message From The Founder

Our Creed

Of all the definitions and explanations of what education is, the most striking and the most thought provoking is the one by the American Educator and Philosopher, John Dewey (1859-1952).

In a most analytical but terse and concise summation, he postulated: “Education is not preparation for life; it is life itself.”

It is this profound but pithy definition of education that informed the conception and eventual birth of this centre of knowledge acquisition for the child and the adolescent.

Education, truly is life and life remains the most precious asset as it has no duplicate. For us at Lakefield, the value we place on life is the same value we place on educating your ward.

Our creed here is: it’s either the best or nothing. In manpower deployment, teaching aids, facilities and infrastructure provision, we remain resolutely committed to offering the best and nothing but the best.

Here at Lakefield, we are not just preparing your ward for life’s future challenges, we are nurturing and moulding them to take life on and conquer its many vissiccitudes.

Our pact with you as parents and guardians is to train, nurture and mentor your ward to evolve as a well-rounded individual and to emerge as a truly educated individual in intellect and character. On this, we will not fail you.

We invite you today to join us on this lofty and noble journey by partnering with us in our resolve to gift our nation, and indeed, humanity, the best educated individuals that any society can look forward to.

Lakefield Schools, we pledge will offer your ward the best learning experience and we will never break our covenant with you.

This is our creed. Welcome to our world.
